The 2023 Conference theme:

“Nuts & Bolts Challenges in Chemistry Education, from Primary School to University Level”

Registration Options: Full conference only.

Chemistry concepts are first introduced in primary schools (colors, states and properties of matter; materials; introduction to particle theory). Then, high school curricula cover many other topics like the electrical nature of matter, atomic and molecular structures, stoichiometry, the nature of energy, and more. Chemistry education brings a variety of challenges at every teaching level in each community.

This conference aims at bringing together the different groups involved in chemistry education (school teachers, educators, college/university professors, chemists, and other specialists) in order to share our experience and knowledge to better support student success.

We encourage you to come and share your chemistry teaching experience, or propose solutions to these challenges (regardless of levels) by submitting a presentation (talk or poster format). You will sure find a sensitive audience among all the conference participants.
